The Summer Singers of Atlanta was formed in 1990 as one of the initial projects of the William Baker Choral Foundation. The first chorus registered 95 singers, and interest has grown steadily over the years to a high of 175 registrants for the Summer Singers’ 2007 performance of Mozart’s Requiem. In its first two decades, the Summer Singers has performed a strong representation of choral/orchestral masterworks. Highlights have included Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 and Mass in C, Schubert’s Mass in G, Mozart’s Great Mass in C minor, Requiem, Coronation Mass and Solemn Vespers, Handel’s Coronation Anthems, Robert Ray’s Gospel Mass, Brahms’ Ein deutsches Requiem and Liebeslieder Waltzes, Thomson’s Frostiana and The Testament of Freedom, Vivaldi’s Gloria and a wide variety of sacred and secular music from all periods. During the 1996 year of Atlanta’s Centennial Olympic Games, the Summer Singers performed a concert of international celebration that featured 12 different languages.
The Summer Singers concept has been so successful that it has been imitated both in Atlanta and in other cities across the nation. Yet, the Summer Singers of Atlanta remains America’s original and best summer chorus.
The 2013 Summer Singers of Atlanta will join with distinguished guest soloists and The Orchestra of the American Heartland to perform Franz Josef Hayden’s Lord Nelson Mass and Te Deum. Our performance on August 4, 2013 will be a grand celebration of one of the most exuberant and joyful periods of music history. Rehearsals begin on Monday, June 3rd.
NO AUDITION is required for membership in the Summer Singers of Atlanta, but music reading ability is a must. Choral experience is highly recommended. All adults and mature youth are invited to participate.
